Summer calls for light layers and even lighter hues to deal with the sweltering heat. I shot this look right before I left for Denmark and this for me is what one may call, a perfect summer outfit. Stripes are all over this season and specifically the blue and white versions of it and why not? Not only does it have that fresh, clean approach and are extremely easy to style but the colours also have been psychologically proven to instil a feeling of calm, peace and purity! Over the past few months, I may have accumulated a dress version, a embroidered shirt version and also a frayed hem skirt version on this trendy pattern but for this look, I wore this off shoulder version with a pair of white denim culottes. This trend to me is the perfect mix of romantic & tough with the former being covered by the feminine silhouettes and the latter, the pattern itself. So be it billowy dresses, off shoulder voluminous tops or an a-line skirt, don't hesitate to drown in this trend this summer!

Every season, it's not just we who get a chance to reinvent their style but it's also essentially the master mind behind our want for change, the brands. Be it a gigantic luxury fashion house or a much loved high street brand, new hues and designs brace all corners. Joyous, captivating & colourful are terms that describes Furla's Spring/Summer '17 collection aptly. A journey of boundless discovery is expressed through the harmonious lineup of varied shapes, materials and decorative details. From classic shapes to trendy bejewelled cross body bags, this collection is aimed to please one and all. Tata CLiQ's luxury section makes this collection exclusively available online for you to shop, paired with quick deliveries and returns. 

My love for handbags is not a secret and every season I tend upgrade my collection with a bag or two. This season, the new Furla collection has definitely caught my fancy. I struggled to reach a decision while browsing through the entire collection on Tata CLiQ. I was affirmative about steering clear of the seductive black handbags and instead go for a fun hue to match my spring & summer wardrobe. I was first eyeing this gorgeous blush pink number. The grained leather, a thin strap and the colour made this an ideal choice for a day time bag! But while I was almost done, I came across a smaller bag in a ruby hue! Shades of red & pink are probably the trendiest colours this season leading me into yet another predicament. I even toyed with the idea of finalising on a more classic colour & style to finally, settle on this pastel blue satchel style bag!

Tata CLiQ Luxury stocks certified products that are sold directly by the brands which is the reason why I didn't hesitate once before placing my order. Authenticity is something that they abide by and all their products are 100% genuine which to me is so essential as there are various websites that are not completely transparent about the authenticity of luxury bags. It also let's you purchase exclusive brands that are not available all over the country, in just a few clicks! My order reached me within 5 working days and it was packed luxuriously packed in a black box, making sure that your buying experience is nothing short of perfect. It's always a joy to share my experience with any up and coming services or brands with all of you and this is definitely one that you should bookmark!

Top 5 Highlighters

Summer adds that much needed and sometimes unwanted to glow to your skin! But when you're going for a special occasion, you certainly want that right glimmer on your face. Over the years, I've tried and tested various highlighters and these are the one's that made it to my top 5 list!

1) Bobbi Brown Highlighter in Bronze Glow
It's a gorgeous powder formulation beautifully sits on the skin and a little goes a long way. It's two tone bronze with peach undertones bronzer which works ideally for Indian skin tones. The way I like to use it is with a fan brush of any blush brush pressed to condense and a light swipe on the tops of my cheek bone. A little spritz of MAC fix plus and your highlight will be in place all night!

2)Dior Flash Luminizer
If you're like me and love to highlight on a day to day basis, then this one's for you. It comes in a clickable, sleek reflective pen form with various different shades to choose from. I use the shade 500 which is a gorgeous pearly vanilla shade that blends instantly, leaving a soft focus glimmer. It's probably the best nightlight I've come across for an every day basis need and the fact that you don't need a brush to blend it, quickens the process.

3) Benefit High Beam
If you're into make up, I'm pretty sure you've heard about this way too many times! For me this is a cult favourite, a product I always go back to! It's a liquid formulation that comes in a tiny glass bottle resembling a nail varnish. The brush can be used to directly apply the product on to your face and the use a tapping motion with your fingers to blend it in. It is quite pigmented so I suggest staring with a light swipe and building it as you go. This is a product you can't go wrong with and it comes 3 to 4 other shades too!

4) Bobbi Brown Highlight Stick
I was introduced to this product sometime last year and I haven't stopped reaching for it yet! It's highlighting pencil that you use to drawn on the point you'd like to highlight and then blend using your finger or a beauty blender. The narrow tip makes it easier to apply highlight on the bridge of your nose and cupids bow. I love layering this with a powder highlight as it then creates an unbreakable bond and your highlight stays in place all day and all night!

5) Mac Soft & Gentle Skinfinish
Another one of those cult products that I've been stocking for years! It's powder finish with again a peachy bronze undertone. The powder is so fine and velvety that when applied it looks natural and from imitates a healthy glow. While on holiday or for some special events, I even love applying this to my shoulders and collar bone for that glam effect.

Created these two denim on denim looks for the #DenimizeTheWorld campaign for Only. For the first look, I chose a classic shift dress which was upgraded with the simple criss cross tie up details in the front. Paired it with a light weight chambray bomber jacket with a quirky quote. Although I love the look of different hues of denim blues paired together, a pop of red was unavoidable! For the second look, I choose these frayed hem, ripped denims and paired it with a voluminous chambray top. I styled the top differently by wearing it backwards & tying the sleeves at the waist. For the accessories, I stuck to adding pops of colour with these bright orange pumps and my latest possession, these pink reflective RayBans! is running some amazing discounts on their denim  wear right now and you could get upto 30% off if you buy two or more items and use the code STYLEDENIM! Happy Denimizing.

Jeans- Only, Bag- Chanel, Shirt- Only, Shoes- Charles & Keith| Location- Mumbai Vibe

Each summer, jeans are redecorated and presented to us and before we know it, we're all going gaga over the latest shred! This year its the frayed hems and rips at the knees that seem to be prominent changes. No matter, the changes, denim is always on point in summer. So be it that old denim shirt or those baggy ripped jeans or that denim shirt dress you got last season, it's time to flaunt them, everyday, yet again. You can even update those old jeans by shredding the hems watching the various DIY videos on Youtube, but if you're like me, just grab this pair from Only. It's a perfect mid-blue wash, has understated patches of shreds through the front and of course the final frayed hem! I decided to go for a denim on denim look and paired with this printed chambray shirt.

Summer calls for mini dresses, lots of chambray and cocktails by the beach! While I may have to wait a little longer for the last bit, mini dresses & chambray have slowly taken over my closet. This 90's inspired number is from Veromoda. The crochet over lay and the warm colours scream summer like no other. The criss cross detailing added that oomph and may have also been the final deciding factor for me to grab it. I paired it with a denim chambray shirt, chunky tan heels and clear glasses for a casual lunch with the girls and I wouldn't hesitate to pair it with nude lace up shoes and a red bag for the night!

So far summer has been rather good with most time being spent on planning for the months to come and the travels to embark on. I've been spending a lot of time researching on the destinations, travel options and of course, places to shop! It's a tedious process with an appealing outcome. I love travelling not only because it gives you a break from your routine but also because it gives you the chance to interact with and observe people from the various different cultures, changing your perspective about this world, that we seem to think we know all about. And not to forget the delicious food and overwhelming options to shop. Are you guys headed somewhere this summer? If yes, tell me more in the comments below! If not, I'll be sharing lots of my travel stories on the blog, so keep an eye out for that.
